My name is Liz Wann and I live and write in the Fresh Prince of Belair’s hometown: West Philadelphia. I live in a 3 story row home and enjoy city life; my home church is just a few blocks away. I’ve been married 9 years to Josh. He’s done some pretty cool things, like start a Christian rap/hip hop record label and a video company. He currently works full-time as a filmmaker.


On September 10, 2012 we had our first son, Simon. We gave Simon a little brother named Eli on October 11, 2014, and we had our daughter, Chloe, on January 6, 2018. I’m a Charlotte Mason homeschooling mom as well. 91430036

Before becoming a wife and mom, I went to Rollins college in Winter Park, FL (Orlando is my hometown) and received my B.A. in English and writing. Besides staying home and taking care of my boys (plus baby girl), I do freelance writing for various ministries/publications, including Truth for Life with Alistair Begg. I’m a regular contributor for Desiring God Ministries and editor in chief at Morning by Morning.

    I just sent your “Letter to your sons about pornography” to about 50 plus men including a pastor.
    I encouraged them to save it for their sons, grandsons and nephews.
    Thanks you.

  6. Hey Liz, Yes, I went to WP High and moved away for college years and since… but it’s still my hometown. My family lives in China now but we’ll be visiting back in Orlando this fall. If you happen to visit then I would LOVE to get to meet you and chat about all your beautiful writing and the Savior we both dearly love. Every blessing to you, in Christ!

    1. Wow. That’s great. I grew up in the Orlando area for 14 years. Didn’t leave until right before I married my husband. And then we came back for the wedding. We’re actually in Orlando right now! So, we won’t be back in the fall. We tend to come out every year though. Let me know whenever you are in Orlando or even Philly.

  7. Hi Liz! I too have been married for 6 years, had our first son in 2012. And am now a boy mom of three boys! Just wanted you to know I am encouraged by your recent article on parenting from ERLC. My husband and I see exciting things happening in our family spiritually and it makes us so excited to see God doing his miraculous work in hearts of our kids. Take care and God bless!
